[Gravity cask at the Back of Beyond, Reading] Black with ruby hints, no head. Sweet chocolate, camp coffee and a bit of treacle causes it to be rather sweet up front. However, it’s saved by roasted malt coming through in the surprisingly dry finish. It’s rather nice actually. Gary (1999) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2010
Herold Black Lager is a real drink , the best Schwarzbier in the world imo. Had this cask at a JDWS and it was cool and more interesting than most in their festival. Roasted chocolate and burnt raisin profile , with a little motor oil in the finish . Swillable ,tasty Schwarz. weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2008
Black as the blackie the black cat from next door in the middle the night. Minus the bright eyes. Thin brown, quickly fading head. Treacle toffee like for me, a good beer for the witches and wizards amongst my fellow rate beer freaks. One of those beers I neither liked nor disliked. bobinlondon (1295) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2010
Hand pulled cask at the Moon and Sixpence (JDW) Hatch End. Almost black with a creamy tan head. Dry roast coffee and chocolate with a little caramel and peppery Saaz hops. Interesting to try this cask conditioned. greenclansman (906) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - MAY 10, 2012
Black color with reddish lights.
Thin body, watery texture.
Nice roasted aromas. Roasted malts on taste as well.
Easy going but pleasant beer.

dark and malty, and has a good aftertaste. not too gassy either, and cheap.
